Customer Question
Hello i recently installed an...
Hello i recently installed an after market stereo in my 2000 dodgw caravan. While removing the old radio i had the car on so i could use the interior light and have heat. I pulled the plug off the radio and the plug bounced of the back of the radio which was grounded out. I replaced the radio fuse amd there is still no power from the pink wire. As well as the power locks or dome lights do not work without the key being on.

that worked. One more question? Today i replaced the thermostat today. The instalation went seemingly well until i noticed it leaked a great deal. I reassembled the thermostat by placing gasket, then thermostat, and finally the housing. The housing is properly torqued why is it leaking? I bought a new gasket and permatex. How can i assemble this properly? Thank you very much for your time.

Did it leak before replacing thermostat?

No the thermostat was in fail safe and producing minimal heat.
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I'd try another gasket from dealership, here are instructions from manual so you can double check nothing was overlooked. I'm guessing it is a design flaw with gasket as nothing else should cause this. Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
